15-minute hip mobility session | Tackle social fatigue | Tips for beginner cyclists

Ease pain and improve performance with this 15-minute hip mobility session

Running and lifting can be tough on your hips – particularly if you tend to follow your gym visits with a solid nine hours at your desk. Finding time for joint-opening sessions between work and workouts can be tricky, but the good news is that it takes minutes – not hours – to work on those hard-to-stretch areas that always feel tight. 

This hip-opening, lower-body mobility session, led by Strong Women Training Club trainer Emma Obayuvana is the 15-minute reset you need. She'll have you working through windshield wipers and low lunges to not only ease pain but also improve range of motion so you can squat deeper and jump higher.
